Bitti Mohanty arrives in Rajasthan
Jaipur, March 14 : A Kerala Police team Thursday arrived in Rajasthan's Alwar town with Bitti Mohanty, who jumped a parole in 2006 after his conviction for raping a German woman in the state, officials said.
The team will collect various documents and fingerprints from Alwar, some 150 km from here to verify that the man in their custody is Bitti Mohanti.
Mohanti was arrested from Alwar in 2006 for raping a German woman. Mohanty is the son of B.B. Mohanty, a former director general of police in Odisha. He had raped a German tourist in Rajasthan's Alwar district March 21, 2006 and convicted on April 12, 2006.
"The Kerala Police team has approached us to provide all the documents related to his arrest seven years ago and other evidence. We will also provide them with details of the identification marks on his body which were taken into records at the time of his arrest," a senior police officer from Alwar told IANS.
The officer said that the Kerala Police team is likely to leave for Jaipur from Alwar Friday morning.
"Some more documents related to his stay in Jaipur jail and parole jump will be collected from the state capital," a Jaipur police officer said.
Mohanty was sentenced to seven years' imprisonment on rape charges. In November 2006, he secured parole to meet his ailing mother. Since then, his whereabouts are unknown.
Mohanty's father served as director general, home guards and fire services at the time when Mohanty committed the crime, and was accused of aiding his son's escape.
He was arrested for aiding the son's escape in January 2008 but released on bail after a few days.
